Steal This Look: A Low-Key Dining Room in Hudson, NY

A simple dining room in a Hudson, New York, 1800s Italianate Victorian house won this year’s Considered Design Awards in the living/dining category. Owner Brigitte Gfeller washed the walls in palest gray, creating a neutral backdrop for an unfussy tableau of farmhouse furniture and industrial light fixtures from Workstead. Here’s a look at the details.
